Education & Collaboration in 3D
I was preparing some handouts for a school that wanted to see the Voxon VX1 in action, when it suddenly dawned on me that my 2 to 4 page summary of some of the key uses of the VX1 in education, had blown out to 11 pages pretty quickly! There are just so many uses of the technology for education and collaboration, all in true volumetric 3D, that I thought it’s probably a good idea to highlight some of the things that can encourage better learning outcomes, and mesmerise both students and teachers.
The unique and captivating visual appearance of true volumetric data, along with the interactive nature of being able to move around images in a group without wearing special glasses, makes Voxon Photonics’ technology perfect for the education sector and engaging with students.
With the ability to zoom in extremely high resolution, there is no limit to what can be displayed on the VX1. Imagine showing a particular molecular structure in 3D, and then showing the same image with the different molecules in different colours. There’s an instant visual representation of how a molecular structure works. For many students this offers a much different method of learning.
Display historical artifacts, museum pieces or paleontology right in front of your eyes. Zoom in, study, compare and discuss.
Imagine looking at small insects in amazing detail. What you see is only limited by the quality of the data provided.
Create 3D volumetric displays from MRI data or zoom in on data already readily available on the internet. Learn about the anatomy and medicine in a completely new and amazing way.
Graphcalc (a program that comes with the VX1) is a Mathematical simulator that lets you create volumetric animated formulas.
Using standard mathematical functions such as trigonometry, logarithmic functions and many other functions, Graphcalc allows students and teachers to explore mathematics in a way that many had not even thought possible.
Dotmunch (much like a 3D version of Pacman) was created with just 300 lines of code. So, we would like to think that there is no limit to what students can create.
We recreated the famous Star Wars Dejarik game… just for fun. What could your students and children create in 3D?
Children can create amazing models, designs and animations in 3D. Now they can display their designs right in front of their eyes. No special glasses, no illusions, a true 3D volumetric display where you can observe and interact from any angle. There are no limits as to what they can design.
NASA provides a massive amount of 3D resources online free of charge. If you want to download an international space station or an asteroid, you can. Then display this right in front of your eyes in 3D volumetric format which you can rotate, zoom in or out, move around and discuss with your fellow classmates or colleagues.
Topography or Mapping
Using map data, zoom into any location in the world to see formations in 3D. What does the Himalayan Mountain range and Tibetan plateau look like? Discuss how this was formed… There are so many learning applications and fun activities to be had with the Voxon VX1.
The Voxon VX1 is another tool that can help students and children learn in a fun and interactive environment. Hit us up with any questions or feel free to comment below.
